If the hole or tear in your screen is smaller than 3 inches, you can repair it relatively easily.
You will just need a screen repair kit (available at most hardware stores). These kits consist of adhesive screen mesh replacement. Just be sure to check the dimensions of the screen pieces in the kit you purchase to ensure it will cover the hole in your screen properly.
Once you have your kit, simply follow the instructions on the package. Most kits do not require any tools, although some may call for a heat source to properly adhere. For these, a hair dryer is usually recommended.
